When I was a girl, if you wanted to grow bigger breasts you either did those exercises Judy Blume wrote about in Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret (“I must, I must, I must increase my bust!”) or you went on the birth control pill. Now, a “Japanese YouTube star” named Ryoko has a new method: rubbing raw vegetables on her boobs.
You can watch Ryoko do strange, mostly SFW things with an array of fresh-picked veggies after the jump: Keep reading »
From Bagelheads to period blood chocolate, Japan really knows how to start a trend. The latest Japanese trend you can really sink your teeth into is the rise of the unlikely sex symbol, the “sausage bread boy.”
Named after the popular Japanese snack, a hot dog baked in pastry dough, these men, who are currently considered a hot commodity on the singles scene, have body types that vaguely resemble the beloved snack: soft and doughy, fluffy in an appealing way (the illustration above shows the ideal sausage bread boy). As if they weren’t already cute enough, SBBs often dress like laid back mountain men. Yes, we’ll take an order of that, please! [Nerve]

In Japan, there is an island of fairytale dreams called Tashirojama, better known as Cat Heaven Island. In this magical land, cats outnumber humans. Tashirojama has about 100 human residents, and many of them care for the kitties who make their homes all over the island. It is said on the island that giving the cats a helping hand brings good luck and wealth. The cats hang out in backyards, chill in the streets, and run free on the beach like wild horses do in Nicholas Sparks movies. I want to go to there. But seriously. This place looks like a dream come true. Free cuddles from kittens all day? Sign me up! Photographer Fubirai documents Tashirojama’s adorable feline residents, so head to his website if you’re looking for more! [Huffington Post, Fubirai, So Bad So Good]
Leave it to Japan to think up a game show combining blowjobs, porn stars and a timed clock. On ”Orgasm Wars,” a gay male porn stars tries to give a straight male porn star an orgasm “against his will” as he’s cheered on by a group of friends. Here, Sawai, the gentleman on the receiving end of this competitive fellatio is hidden behind a screen for modesty, while the Takuya, the blowjob-giver, bends on his hands and knees and fills the audio track with more slurping sounds than a Johnny Rockets. I watched with bated breath. Does gargling first actually help you give better head? Will Sawai climax in time? (They get 40 minutes.) Will anyone give Takuya some knee pads? And who will host “Orgasm Wars” when it comes to America? [UpRoxx]
Hey there, sonic nerds: this mini-symphony is made entirely from the sounds of water in Kumamoto, Japan. The area is known for it’s high quality water, so Sony took it upon themselves to make their own water-powered version of Pachelbel’s Canon by going around with high-quality audio equipment and recording the beautiful and varies noises. You may not listen to the sounds of nature quite the same way again. Also, can we just talk about how scenic it looks there? Sign me up for a visit.
Is it just me, or does the concept of an owl cafe not quite possess the same appeal as their predecessor, cat cafes? A bird of prey is not exactly my ideal coffee ‘n’ crumb cake companion … but as Japan would have it, “fukurou” cafes offering owl-themed food and drink are all the rage, with certain establishments even permitting patrons to pet the owls in residence. I’m interested in hearing what Amelia has to say about this. The owls are not what they seem. [Worst. Nightmare. No. That is all. -- Amelia] [via Refinery29] [Photo: Lonely Planet]
